JDBC-ODBC bridge Invalid handle

I have written a 3 tier database access system using RMI.  I have got JDBC working in Oracle, and postgres, but now I'm trying to port it to MS Access using the jdbc-odbc bridge driver.  

I have managed to get a connection to the database, and can add data.  However when I try to pull data back via the Resultset I get a Java.SQL.SQLException invalid handle when ever I run the rs.next() method.  The code works on the other platforms.

Any ideas ????

You might want to try using code similar to this to get some more specific information about your error:

catch (SQLException e) {
  while (e != null)
  {
    System.out.println(e.getMessage());
    System.out.println("Error code: " + e.getErrorCode());
    System.out.println("SQL State: " + e.getSQLState());
    e.printStackTrace();
    e = e.getNextException();
  }
}

There could be a minor bug while you are getting the resultset, which you may b overlooking . It would be helpful if you post that part of the code here, and some expert will be able to help you out.  Is the query properly created ? it will be helpful if you print out the SQL, I am expecting that with little debugging effort this should be solvable.

//Lets assume in res you have a stirng query. And you already have an open connection con.

try
{
  ResultSet r = null;
  int updatecount = -1;
  int key;

  //create statement
  Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
  //execute the statement
  boolean rs = stmt.execute(res);
 
  if (rs)
  {
    //the case when the next result is a ResultSet

    //get the resultset
    r = stmt.getResultSet();

    boolean b = r.next();
    if (b)
    {
      //Getting elements

      rm = r.getMetaData();
      for (int i = 0; i < rm.getColumnCount(); i++)
      vec.addElement(r.getString(i + 1));

    }
    else
    {
      System.out.println("No more elements.");
      stmt.close();
    }
  }
  else
  {
    //the next result is either update count or no more results
    updatecount = stmt.getUpdateCount();
    if (updatecount != -1)
    {
      //do something with the update count
    }
    stmt.close();
  }
}
catch (SQLException e)
{
  while (e != null)
  {
    e = e.getNextException();
  }
}
catch (java.lang.Exception e)
{
  e.printStackTrace();
}

//---------------

I find this sequence of working with JDBC most reliable.
